::: ABOUT THIS RELEASE :::
" EPP1 has been inspired by different cultures and their representative music which have shaped this melting-pot of sounds which
we like to think represents the mix of culture of modern cities.
It is the result of a collaborative work between musicians with different backgrounds, poets, videomakers and random people we met.
The album has been recorded in our home studio in Brixton (London) between 2007 and 2011."

" Travels, encounters, mix of cultures and sounds, that's the story of this album, and also the kind of stories we like to tell !
EPP1 is the perfect illustration of a clever conversation between genres and eras."
